Title: Energy Efficient Bentonkühlung and food refrigeration
In 1998 the company was "Stetter Cooling Systems Gmbh" on a tunnel construction site for the first time confronted with the issue of concrete cooling. Although it was not originally came from the refrigeration sector, the project manager noted that all current methods for concrete cooling are not truly energy efficient, because the ice at -28 ° C is produced. Therefore, an energy-saving technology for the production and storage of ice at a temperature of -1 ° C was developed. Since 2004, now the company is exclusively engaged in the manufacture and development of alternative concrete cooling system and would like to extend this technique to other areas. This cooling system saves up to 50% of energy compared to conventional systems.
